Now that spring has officially arrived, it’s time to start planning your next beach getaway. But a quick look at your go-to sandals from last summer can introduce a frightening sight — the leather is now sand-blasted, the soles are extra worn. Luckily, the latest sandals to hit the market will make you want to toss the old.
For the upcoming season, we suggest embracing crafted finishes and colorful hues — summer is a time to celebrate, after all.
Chloé’s spring ’16 multicolor sandals, knotted and wrap-tied around the ankle, are straight from the runway and bound to make you the most chic lounger by the pool.
Artisanal styles from Elina Linardaki and Stella Jean will set you apart from the crowd (think flourishes like fringing and tassels). Loeffler Randall’s bubblegum pink style adds a refreshing touch to the classic laceup.
There’s also a real emphasis on shape this season. Tibi’s pleated slide or Prada’s flatform with jutte midsole offer extra visual interest without being too kooky.
